SERENITY AT MAMBUKAL RESORT

I had always heard about Mambukal Mountain Resort (Mambukal Resort) known to many, when I was still studying in college. I look up on the Internet and see images, and at that time, I couldn’t actually find something interesting.

My father told me the adventures they did when they had their team building in the resort, and he was so excited as he spoke to me.

WHY MAMBUKAL RESORT?

It must be something because many individuals go there to visit the place. It must be worth the try after all. So over the past weekend, my family and I decided to book our trip there, and I was wrong after all. I was wrong thinking that it was just some place of nature. It was really calming to the point that we did not have much time to roam around the 23.6-hectare landย of Mambukal Resort.

 

DETAILS AND OBSERVATIONS FOR MAMBUKAL RESORT

Mambukal Resort is a 23.6-hectare land located in Negros Occidental. The resort is 1200 feet above sea level and the staff have said that it serves a gateway to Mt. Kanlaon. Expect the place to be surrounded with everything nature – trees, rivers, waterfalls, and other more. Entrance fees and fees for activities are really affordable. Visitors who wish to stay for an overnight can book their stay in advance.

For us, we haven’t stayed during the night because we checked-in at 11th Street Pension house. You can see other inns and hotels here.

RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES IN MAMBUKAL RESORT

They have the following for leisure actitivies: Take note that these are just really cheap, just Php100-300.00

  • Swimming Pool
  • Hot Sulfur Bath/Warm Sulfur dipping pool
  • Bat watching
  • Trekking
  • Boating Lagoon

We went to the almost “boiling” bath called Japanese Ofuro because I was curious about how hot it is. I did want to try to dip in the small “pool” just about 2 feet but damn! it was really really hot! I couldn’t get in haha. Yes, there were some people who did try (I don’t know how they could get through that 20-minute dip without the excruciating pain. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Trekking for about 20 minutes was also one of the things we tried there. There were no fees for the activity itself but they will give you a tour guide, which then will be your choice if you are willing to give them anything in return. Of course we did, the tour guide was really helpful. Trekking towards waterfalls is quite easy but we only did limit ourselves with the first waterfall (it’s 7 waterfalls by the way).

Our time was limited to we couldn’t afford to spare another time for the rest. But you could do that and ride habal-habal. Many of the drivers are just waiting at the entrance of whoever wants to go to the farthest falls.

TIPS:

  • It’s better to arrive there in the morning so that you will have more time to roam around and have more huts to choose. We arrived at around 11 Am, the time was still lacking.
  • Bring your own food/meals if you come in with groups. You can do the grilling at the resort without fee. They have stations there, you can also bring your own rice cooker. The resorts with huts have outlets.
  • If you don’t want the hassle of bringing food, don’t worry, they have cheap restaurants inside.
  • It can get either too hot or too cold, so be prepared with enough clothing.
  • It’s better if you have your own private vehicle. The resort is uphill.

Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚ If you like this or want this as a resource in the future, pin this image below ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! Thank you for sharing I will definitely take note of this post on my future visit there. I’m sure you had an awesome time. Were the waters there always that hot or was it just bad timing? Were the rocks slippery too?

      You are welcome!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I surely did had an awesome time. The only water that is warm is the sulfur but other than that, the rivers and etc – they are freezing cold. The rocks aren’t that slippery so it was fine. I even just wore a pair of slippers. haha

    This looks like such a fun day to spend with the family. I can’t go in pools with hot water too, but I heard once you get you’re whole body there, it relaxes your muscles. Para ka lang sigurong nilalaga lol

      oo ganyan nga. Too hot talaga. Boiling. I tried to dip my hands and I pulled it out after 10 seconds haha. But it is really relaxing especially for adults.

    Such a pretty resort, Shen! Do they offer any packages? It seems kinda crazy that they almost charge you with everything. Despite that, I’m glad you had a fun time!

    The waterfalls look perfect.

      As of the moment, they don’t have packages for activities. Each is separated with fees or do you mean the accommodation? haha.

      Thank you Eena!! I really did.
